Why low CPU AND GPU usage?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is driving me insane (not really.)

Ok, anyway, with my old system
E4500 @ 2.9
4850 @ 740/1000
3GB DDR2 @ 667

My GPU usage was 95-99% in most of the games, Just Cause 2 was 95% and goes down to 80% when some massive explosion happens. CPU was 80% with 99% in explosions.

Now, GPU is 75-80% adn CPU is %70.

Same with Mafia 2. >90% GPU usage and 80% CPU, and now 50% GPU and 95% CPU.

Dirt 2 50% GPU, 80% CPU.

question..... are you using v-sync???

if so it will only ever use enough power to render 60fps... which is fine..
